Review: From Prada To Nada (2011)

This riches to rags film is a re-imagining of Jane Austen’s Sense And Sensibility. Siblings Norah and Mary were orphaned by their father and are left with almost nothing but their belongings. Their estranged stepbrother bought their house and they had no other choice but to live with their Aunt in a Mexican Town at East Los Angeles.
There, they needed to adjust with their new lifestyle, learn their culture and discover a whole lot more about love and family.
I actually enjoyed watching this film. There isn’t much about the acting especially with Camilla Belle (I hated the nonchalant approach)

but she was balanced out by Nicholas D’Agosto. It was just a feel good film that will leave you smiling right after watching it.

I would give it a 7/10 Ratings.

My Best Dressed Of The Night goes to supermodel Gisele Bündchen wearing a black Givenchy dress which I think is very elegantly slick and clean! I so love it! She’s truly the embodiment of a physically non-aging  supermodel!

In Focus: Alexander McQueen

It’s been exactly 10 months since Alexander McQueen’s body was found hanged at his home in London. A sad, sad event that left the whole fashion and entertainment industry mourning for this great loss.  Lee Alexander McQueen, without question was a genius that revolutionized fashion in such a daring and ferocious manner. Clearly, with his technically and aesthetically creative works; McQueen will eternally be remembered!

He brought a uniquely British sense of daring and aesthetic fearlessness to the global stage of fashion. In such a short career, Alexander McQueen’s influence was astonishing – from street style, to music culture and the world’s museums. His passing marks an insurmountable loss. – Anna Wintour

Local magazine, PREVIEW also paid their tribute on their 15th anniversary issue last June with model Georgina Wilson wearing recreations of McQueen’s most iconic looks.
